Tim McGraw Scholarship

The Tim McGraw Medical Education Scholarship

 

The Tim McGraw Medical Education Scholarship provided a partial support for one Duke University graduate who participated in the CAPE program. The selected student had the opportunity to attend Duke University Medical School. This scholarship targeted female varsity athletes who displayed:

 

1) a record of academic excellence at Duke;

 

2) excellent interpersonal skills as demonstrated by interactions with patients, families and members of The Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center; and

 

3) continuous interest and passion in pursuing a career in medicine, particularly oncology. Support has been offered by the Tug McGraw Foundation in the amount of $25,000 per year for four years.

 

The Tug McGraw Foundation is pleased to announce that Johanna Bischof was selected as the recipient of the Tim McGraw Medical Education Scholarship. The award provided Johanna $25,000 a year for four years toward the cost of her medical school.

 

“I am honored and delighted to be selected as the first Tim McGraw Medical Education Scholarship recipient. This award will help me immensely to afford attending Duke Medical School and take the first steps toward my goal of becoming an oncologist.”
